12.07. – 18.07.2021

1 atelier, 3 artists, 8 days

TRIOLOGUE will be the first project of ‘Dancing the City’ and will introduce an unusual, interdisciplinary concept:

Together with designer Melanie Planchard and musician Piet Dahm, Elisabeth is moving onto the terrace of Trifolion Echternach for a week. Together, the artists will immerse themselves in the working rhythm of the city and offer an insight into artistic creative processes in their open studio from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily:

How is a stage performance created? How do different art forms work together? What moves and inspires the artists?  And what does this have to do with the place of the performance and its inhabitants?

The audience is invited to participate in the creation process in a variety of ways – and this is what makes TRIOLOGUE special: TRIOLOGUE invites everyone to come by – one minute, three minutes, 3 hours – and actively participate in its creation: Through various pre-created structures, the audience is invited to observe, comment, discuss, draw, reflect – and in this way interweave the production with the heartbeat of the city.

The result will be presented several times in the TRIFOLION on 18.07.2021.


This event is free of charge.

The dancer and choreographer Elisabeth Schilling is artist in residence at TRIFOLION Echternach from 2021 to 2023. The theme of the residency is “Dancing the City”.
The aim of Elisabeth Schilling’s residency is to strengthen the role of contemporary dance in the city of Echternach, to make this art form accessible to a broad audience and to pass on her own enthusiasm for it to people who may have had little contact with this art form until now. To this end, she develops smaller and larger stage plays, but above all formats that combine ideas and actions that take place in urban space, in public, everyday places, with the classical theatre stage.

Next project: Elisabeth Schilling: TRIOLOGUE | 12 – 18.07.2021 | with Pit Dahm & Mélanie Planchard
